World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) is an annual awareness-raising campaign highlighting the need for the conservation of migratory birds and their habitats. It has a global outreach and is an effective tool to help raise global awareness of the threats faced by migratory birds, their ecological importance, and the need for international cooperation to conserve them.

Kiliyur, Koothaippar and Devarayaneri tanks on the outskirts of Trichy have been some of the ideal spots for these winged visitors to rest for the past few weeks after travelling several thousand miles.

The vast majority of migratory birds rely on aquatic ecosystems during their life cycles.

Let’s take an oath to preserve aquatic ecosystems and migratory birds.
